In brief: Difficult to say

Tonsils help fight inflammation.
They grow large when they are overworked. The reason yours are as big as you describe is difficult to diagnose, but a good ENT doctor will be able to tell you what may be going on, and also provide suggestions for therapy, which may include surgery.
